5:00 pm
put a $1,000 in ebay then, you're looking at $68,000 and even facebook recovered, $1,000 of that horrific ipo last year is worth 27% more today. would you take the risk and buy twitter? let us know, we'll have a let us know, we'll have a special report on that tomorrow. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com erin thanks, new jersey governor chris christie's potential road to the white house and potential potholes on it. he said he was too drunk to remember picking up the crack pipe and he's not stepping down. we'll hear from rob ford and the reporter that first broke the story. breaking news in the kendrick johnson story. there were 36 cameras inside and outside the gym where he died. we got access to new footage from inside the gym. we're sorting through it and the camera on the gym mats where his
5:01 pm
body was found. we'll bring that to you when we can. the winning election in a land slide and riding the wave all the way to the white house or at least, well, that's how george w. bush did it in texas in 1998 bulldozing a half dozen potential gop challengers and using the big margin of victory as a battering ram in the primaries and as proof of the campaign message he was a moderate, a compassion et conservative. chris christie is more combative perhaps than compassion et and he won big with gender and ethnic lines. he's the man with the presidential buzz, and a record for better and worse. we'll explore it. starting with background from chief political correspondent candy crowley. >> reporter: if you're wondering whether governor chris christie would use the new jersey template to win a presidential election, you didn't have to ask. >> i know that if we can do this in trenton, new jersey, maybe
5:02 pm
the folks in washington d.c. should tune in their tvs now and see how it's done. >> reporter: his shrinking girth aside, the governor of new jersey has an outside ego and an out sized personality that screams authentic. >> you'll get your hug later, brother. and i can -- i can tell you this, i guess there is open bar tonight, huh? welcome to new jersey. >> reporter: he is a hands on politician, he's a hand shaker, a hugger, a hell fellow well met until he's not like with the teacher that didn't reactual to the explanation on layoffs. >> i sat here, stood here and very respectfully listened to you. if what you want to do is put on a show and giggle every time i talk, i have in interest in answering your question. >> reporter: the reporter that broke rules at a press
5:03 pm
conference. >> on monday are you going to be addressing the legislature. >> did i say on top pick? are you stupid? on top pick. >> reporter: the veterans that argued about funding for state schools. >> let me tell you something, after you graduate from law school you conduct yourself like that in a courtroom, you're rear end is going to get thrown in jail idiot. >> reporter: how will that play in a presidential campaign? >> are you prepared to make adjustments to the personal style, to tone down your rashness, to appeal to peel beyond new jersey? >> no. >> none at all? >> no, this is who i am, kelly. you're asking me at 51 years old to be a different person. >> reporter: he's one of the most youtubed governors in country. that's why they like him in new jersey and an early hit with n conservatives but the appeal worn thin. tea party types are suspicious and say christie give up the fight on same-sex marriage too
5:04 pm
early and without a thought on how uncle sam would pay for it. christie is anti abortion kept state funds from going to planned pararent hood and by in large glover earned as a face coal conservative. what won him the election is the ability to work with democrats. president who struck up a bromance called the governor to congratulate him on the victory that may play well in piaorian. a country tired of the bickering. the new jersey new jersey template could work in a general election but first, he has to sell it to his own party. >> more now with republican strategist anna navarro, national hispanic chair and cnn political come pay tore pollster cornell belche. >> calls reporter idiots, says
5:05 pm
he doesn't need to mend fence, people need to understand who he is. it's appealing to people and could it be a liability outside of new jersey? >> look, some people are going to like him, some people are not. he's absolutely right. he cannot change it. this is who he is and what he brings to the table. an enormous amount of aught then 'tisty, which is something we complained about not having in the last nominee. this is something we actually crave and i think he also brings a dramatic change from what's in the white house now and after eight years we may be due for some of that change. anderson, you can't argue with the numbers. the guy got a third of democrats, a majority of latinos, he got 2-1 the independents, 57% of women. any republican that could come close to those numbers would be in the white house. >> and cornell, electability, certainly as anna said, it seems sure to be his argument if he
5:06 pm
chooses to run in 2016. he won all those groups, as she just said. how strong a candidate do you see him as? >> well, two things. one, i'm in your city so-call me later so you can tell me where i should smoke and drink. anna points out is this, is, you know, in -- by the way the immediamedi media's love affair with chris christie has begun because the more main stream media loves him the less and less the tea party will trust him. romney is a problem for chris christie because the problem is this, let's for a second channel and get in the minds of a core republican voter. a tea partier. okay. you got a blue state governor whose reached across the isle to work with democrats and who the establishment loves and they say he's electable. however, from the ideal logical standpoint, i'm not that comfortable with him, but they
5:07 pm
tell me to vote for him anyway. i think collision chrhris chrise a hard time. the tea party has not stepped back but got more emboldened and i think he'll have a hard time. >> i want to play something from dana bash, what he had to say about governor christie's win. >> there are factors in new jersey that i think are individual to that race and clearly he was able to speak to that to the hopes and aspirations to people within new jersey. and that's good, that's important. we want to win everywhere we can and governor christie has shown a way in winning in new jersey and states like new jersey. >> that's not exactly a compliment, is it? >> it's half of one. you know, it's something coming from a guy who may be running against him, frankly, but also, i know marco rubio and i happen
5:08 pm
to know he's had a friendship and a good relationship, working relationship with chris christie and i have to tell you, i give cornell a lot of credit because it takes a lot of things to go on national tv to compare mitt romney to chris christie. nobody would see any similar tarly. mitt romney needs a focus group to find out what jeans to wear this is a guy who can hardly get out of his fleece. they are different strokes as people can be and be in the same party and certainly, he'll never be the tea party candidate. he won't be the tea party candidate in the primary, but that's okay because there may be five guys fighting to be the tea party candidate on the right of him and if that's the case, that may open up the pact for chris christie. >> cornell, that aught then 'tisty, people use that word when they talk about chris christie, does that wear well over time, or does it sometimes start to kind of grate on
5:09 pm
people? >> it one of the most important things. one of the things elector got scenical politics, understandable. aught then 'tisty you can smell from a mile away. if you're not authentic, it's a hurdle. he has that in spades. here is a problem. when you match him up and look at no time record and positions he's taken, look at where he is om same-sex marriage. you can make the argument he's out of step for the general election and in new jersey if you get inside the exit poll numbers in new jersey, even in his land slide where you head up older and wider elect than a general election, the perfect landslide election, even in this perfect land slide election, he still is losing in the exit polling to hillary clinton. so, i think, you know, there are some problems here. i mean, you know, curve your enthusiasm republicans, just a
5:10 pm
little bit. >> appreciate you both being on. the front page of the new york times ushers in a remarkable big change, the tall guy behind the afro is the mayor and the hair belongs to his son donte and behind them an asian american, behind her an african american. this is one photo a picture of 21st century new york. don lemon with a portrait of the first family. >> from our family to your family, i give you the next mayor of new york city bill de blasio. >> reporter: cracked 20 years of republican rule with their modern family appeal. >> and once again, the smack do down. >> one, two, three.
5:11 pm
>> reporter: he is bill de blas blasio, a 52-year-old college activist who was a supporter of nicaragua rebels. >> that inequality, that feeling of a few doing very well while so many flipped further behind, that is the defining challenge of our times. >> reporter: he promised voters he could combat income inequality and raise taxes on the wealthy to fund public prek. she is sherlane. it was declared she was a lesbi lesbian. >> and he's tall and good looking. >> reporter: she talked about her attraction to de blasio on
5:12 pm
"huffington post" live. >> i didn't date many. >> did you tell him that? >> little dour kiara with hair flowers. >> they are very stylish. >> reporter: then there is donte, the son whose out sized afro became a campaign property. >> he's the only one that will end a stop and risk era that unfairly targets people of color. >> reporter: on an issue basis it did things with the dem ogden fee of the city, family values. the ad touched so many themes at one time. there was not much left any of the other candidates could do at that point. >> reporter: it was enough to convince new yorkers to replace a single wealthy 5'7" billionaire businessman with a 6'5" by racial family with a picture of him hugging his son shows that family matters. don lemon, cnn new york. the new first family of new york. let us know what you think, follow me at twitter and use

5:17 pm
kendrick's body cavity was stuffed with newspaper, his internal organs missing. every turn in this case seems to raise new questions. the question is does this new video from 36 cameras provide answers? victor blackwell joins us with the latest. what does the new video show? >> reporter: anderson, the johnsons would hope this video would give us answers. there was a hash tag on twitter saying give us the tapes. this is providing more questions and few answers. we got a couple clips from the hours of video. the first one shows kendrick walking in from the white side of the screen there behind another student and as soon as he runs out that student disappears and a couple other students disappear -- appear, rather. it's from one image to the next with no explanation of how those students got to that position or where the student at that red shirt went. we blurred their faces because they are minors in this video and the next. let's go to the next one. you can see kendrick at the bottom right of the screen. he's walking at first and then he runs out of the from and just
5:18 pm
like the first video, other students just appear. no explanation. you don't see them walk in. we didn't edit them to put one image next to the other. this is how we received them from the sheriff's office today. >> so the video seems to be jumping around. you are saying those aren't edits. i assume that's a motion sensor camera, is that the way it works, it may take a few seconds for an image to register? >> reporter: that was our first question, the images with kendrick with hours of video what happened at the end and was this video edit snd we reached out to both the school that owns the cameras and the sheriff's office which had a copy that supplied it to us. i'll read the statements from the school district and the attorney says simply, what we produced shoterer sif a raw feed with no edits. and then from the attorney for the sheriff's office, my client
5:19 pm
has confirmed the video was not altered or edited by anyone within the luwndes county sheriff's office. >> what about the corner where the gym mats are where the body was found. that seems to be the key place. we know there is a camera there. you saw that video from that camera today. what did you see? >> reporter: yeah, this is the most important camera of all 36 and i want to show you the video. it's blurry. of all 36 cameras, a video that was provided, this angle is blurry. it's almost impossible to make out any of the faces and if you look at the corner, the top left of the image, those are the mats in which kendrick johnson was found. what you don't see is a top of the mats. and we know why that's important because sheriff deputies say he climbed in through the top of the mat. they say the students found him were playing on top of those mats and in this video, because you can't see that image, you can't see that. also, we saw from one image to
5:20 pm
the next in the other videos, from looking at this, we see students playing basketball and then a few frames later, we see what appears to possibly be the nurse running in, then we see someone running through with a gurney. so there is -- we know from the file of the investigative file, there are activities and there are events between these but we don't see them through what is the only blurry image, the blurry angle of all three dozen cameras provided by the school district and sheriff's office. >> so i'm a little confused. we saw kendrick running from one angle. did the camera on the mat, does that show him approaching the mats at any time, and is there anybody else that shows up? >> reporter: there is activity in the hours of video there, but it's so blurry and so much is happening in that corner. there are bleachers there and students we know from the file would sit in that area. the police say they would play in that area, but because we can'tee the top of the mats, we can't tell if anyone went on top and when they went on top.
5:21 pm
and we don'tee kendrick running in that direction, and in that direct, the video, the image is so blurry. we have not edited this at all, the clarity to tell if kendrick is running in the direction of the mats and there is one other thing i want to mention that we saw and we're walking on getting this on air for you. from this angle, from this camera, anderson, at the very start of the list of images, there's a 12 h-second clip. the gym is dark and a light is turned on in the corner where the mats are, just that corner and you can see a person walking in that direction and then the video stops. 12 seconds, dark gym, they flip on the light, someone is walking that way, and that's the end of it. you know, the theory from the parents is is that kendrick was beaten and put in that corner, rolled up in the mat and it was a coverup. he went missing on the tenth of january, did not come home that night, and they found him on the
5:22 pm
morning of the 11th. >> do we know -- i'm sorry, was the video time stamped so that shadow figure you saw when the lights turned on, do we know what day that is? >> reporter: we don't have time stamps and that's something we're asking for. this video is not put into context because they say in the file, the last 48 hours. they don't see which day it is. i can tell you the next video sequentially is just a quick video of someone turning on the lights in the gym. so that could presumely be the beginning of the day but without a time stamp there is no way to be certain. >> appreciate the reporting, victor. thanks very much. we have that video and we'll bring it to you when we technically can. joining me is ben crump and mark geragos. rather than giving answers, the tapes seem to be raising more questions, don't they? >> anderson, they do and the family believes, as they always have believed, their son did not
5:23 pm
climb into a mat, get stuck and suffocate. we don't see anywhere in the mat that that happened. >> mark geragos, what do you make of all this? >> frankly, anderson, i agree. i think there are more questions. i think it's not likely given some of the things they have shown that he ran in there and climbed in and it just seems like it's too fast. as far as the time stamps, i think they are going to be able to show exactly when those videos were shot. they will have a way -- i've had cases like this where the police officer pain stakingly will go through and there are certain ways that they can correlate a time for one video through a time in actuality and they will be able to cooperate that. i agree with ben. i think it does raise quite a few questions and i think it's going to be some interesting investigation from this point
5:24 pm
forward. mark, the fact that authorities didn't seem to flag any of these things, does that make any sense to you, even blood streaks on the wall that they didn't test? >> i -- you know, i hate to say it but there was almost -- there was almost an idea here that somebody came to this case with a preconceived notion as to what happened, and that's, you know, people always slam lawyers but one of the great things about lawyers is ben is here. he's asking questions, all of a sudden things are coming out. there are starting to be more questions being asked. i don't want to be a conspiracy theory, but there is more going on than everybody was led to believe and it deserves a thorough investigation. >> ben, have you ever got a straight answer about why -- i pane, again, i keep coming back to the bloodstains on the wall. why the authorities did not test those bloodstains? >> well, anderson, there are so many questions yet unanswered.
5:25 pm
as we said before, this is a real life murder mystery and there seems to be more and more add into the mystery. just the fact that this one videotape is blurry, attorney king and i are very troubled by that. his parents have always said all they want to know is the truth and this videotape seems to tell us that the teeth has not come out yet. almost as if something was done with this one video to help conceal the truth. but we're going to keep pressing to get the truth to this murder mystery. >> mark, how much does it hurt an investigation if there is not conclusive evidence, a from the surveillance cameras and i hate to get to this level of the detail, the internal organs of this young man were removed, nobody knows by whom and replaced by paper -- >> anderson -- anderson, i'm with you on that. i mean, it kind of morbid in terms of the facts itself but there are -- somebodies got to explain why did that happen, how did that happen?
5:26 pm
and i think the video really cries out at this point for somebody and they can do it. i've had cases where you can enhance the video you can clarify, blow up, you can do amazing things, it's an amazing world we live in now markly different than five years ago. so as crazy as this video appears right now with the jumping around and blurring everything and else, somebody who in the capable hands of some kind of an audio video specialist, this can be some really important evidence at some point. >> mark geragos, ben crump, appreciate you being on and we'll go through the video trying to isolate that shadow figure. when we do we'll get back to victor blackwell. toronto's crack smoking lawyer, and talk to the reporter that first broke the story. a tragic ending to a missing family in mississippi. the bodies have been found and the suspected killer is in custody.
5:27 pm

5:30 pm
canada, don't ever call it dull again. with a liquored up, crack smoking mayor, the stuper star because he says he probably smoked the crack in one of his trucken stupors or on the cole bear report this. >> after months and months after his denials on thursday toronto police confirmed that ford appears in a video that allegedly depicts the mayor
5:31 pm
smoking crack cocaine. [ applause ] >> but on the bright side, he is personally taking crack off the streets of toronto. >> what he's not doing despite pressure today is stepping down. toronto is a great city, i should say. i liked it a lot. she joins us no. paula more than 24 hours after mayor ford admitted to smoking crack and still, there is no sign he's stepping down, right? >> reporter: absolutely not, anderson, and, you know, the thing is everyone is telling him, supporters, saying look, take a few months, take a few weeks, take some time. no, the people he's probably listening to are the people i spoke to today, the people in the so-called ford nation saying look, this is the best mayor we had in toronto. he can stay in office. these are personal problems. we don't agree with him smoking crack cocaine, personal problems, not problems here at city hall, anderson? >> he said yesterday and i quote, he's got nothing left to hide.
5:32 pm
does anyone really believe is that? >> reporter: we heard that and okay, here we go. i want you to listen to somebody who believes he has a credible voice on that and that's a counselor trying to strip the mayor of most of the powers but listen to what he's worried about. >> you just know there is more coming out. we know there is another video. we don't know what is on it, but not something the mayor is going to like. we know there are wiretaps. we know there are more documents that were redacted but will be coming out, and just more crazy stuff just keeps popping up. >> reporter: yeah, so as you say, canada boring no longer. we'll have the wiretaps perhaps released next week and many fearful about what will be in them. >> again, for a mayor to say
5:33 pm
that, you know, just one of my drunken stupors, implies obviously there have been many. it surprised me that people would accept a mayor having repeated drunken stupors when he's supposed to do the people's business. i understand it was bring your child to workday and a day after smoking crack, the mayor was spending the day in the office with kids. >> reporter: i was stunned today and i just arrived and the entire city at work with their parents today and mayor ford giving a tour to grade 9 students in his office and he, as you can see now, blows a kiss to the media outside. you know, the thing about this is i think most people are going through what i'm going through now and i heard people say look, i had to explain to my kids what cocaine is today. this is schoolyard chatter. i had to do that. it's got to be a point where it's no longer cute. it's no longer funny and i think mayor ford will find no matter what he did. no matter what he confessed to
5:34 pm
yesterday, he's failed to actually put any kind of a period at the end of this drama, he probably put an exclamation point at the end of this. >> my next guest got this through the phone. she and the colleague wrote about the drinking problem. the author of a soon to be published book called "crazy town, the rob ford story." you've done great reporting and how you first came into contact with this infamous video is crazy. can you take us through it? >> reporter: sure, the toronto star has been investigating so with my colleague kevin donovan have wrote about his alcohol problem. he was asked to leave a military ball after showing up impaired earlier this year and a few days after that, i got a call from an
5:35 pm
anonymous tipster who claimed to have a video of the mayor apparently smoking crack cocaine. it took a month back and forth getting to know them and they let us watch it in early may. two weeks after that, your very own gouker ran the story in the "toronto star" and been reporting it all summer long since then. >> you saw the video. what does it actually show? >> it's about a minute and a half long. it shows what a man, clearly rob ford, shot in high-definition. it's in sunshine. he's holding what looks like a crack pipe and he's jerking around on his chair. he's slurring, rambling, he calls the leader of the liberal, federal liberal party a homo foe pick slur and he smokes out of what looks like a crack pipe. >> okay. wait a minute. so he's smoking crack, and making slurs about another
5:36 pm
politician, both homophobic slurs and a racial crack? >> correct. >> okay. so we talked with paula newton about more video possibly coming out. is that your understanding that there is -- is that your understanding? >> the last six months the mayor has been on a rampage and making up this story and the fact that he's never even admitted to drinking before a few days ago, and all along we've been hearing there are other videos and the star is reporting and last week the chief of police dropped a bombshell and said they actually obtained the video and actually had another video as well. so we always heard about other videos. the chief of police had another video. search documents related to a police investigation.
5:37 pm
a lot more stuff probably will be coming out in the next month or so. >> and does he still have a lot of support? >> yeah, there was a poll that came out shortly after, a lot of people have been criticizing that poll, question the sample size taken on halloween suggesting the approval rating went up. he's a populous conservative mayor, he's got the george bush term, sitting and he's not going to judge you and not arrogant. they call it ford nation, canada's version of the tea party. we don't know exactly how people are feeling. i can tell you on the streets and on my twitter feed, people are extremely embarrassed. >> i've been getting that a lot on twitter, a lot of folks watch in this canada and toronto is a great city, a lot of people i talked to kind of feel embarrassed by this guy's behavior but again, we'll see what happens, robin doolittel thank you. we've managed to isolate the

well, a few moments ago we showed you new video of the gym
5:42 pm
where kendrickson died. what does it show, victor? >> reporter: we've got this 12-second clip from the on angle that shows the mats and you can see it's a dark gym then a light over the area where the mats are comes on and you can see a person walking in that direction and then the video stops. now, why is it so blurry? that's our question to the sheriff's office and to the school district. of the 36 cameras inside and outside of windows and doors and calf listerias and hallways, on this camera that shows the mats is blurry but again, a dark gym, someone flips on a light where the hats are where kendrick johnson is found dead and a person walks along that area in that direction and that's it, anderson? >> and then disappears, also which is odd and sort of stops, again, more questions i guess than answers. victor appreciate the update. isha has the 360 bull ton.
